What is Power2Go and do I need it

That depends. What OS are you running? What type of files will you burn to disc (and what capacity disc)?

The program lets you burn various files to CD, DVD or BD. If you only plan on burning data files, you may not need it. If you burn ISO to create bootable CDs or DVDs, you might find it useful if you have XP. Windows 7 and 8 include a feature to correctly burn ISOs. (I don't remember if that feature is included in Vista.)
If you want to copy optical discs to burn backup copies, this software will also handle that. The Windows built-in software doesn't copy discs with DRM.

If you are compiling your own audio and video and then burning the resultant file to disc, the software is partially useful. (Another program has to do the compiling.)
There are other programs that do the same tasks as Power2Go. Roxio Creator (includes the video editing and playback software in addition to the burning unit) and Nero Burning ROM are commonly advertised options. A review of Power2Go with links to reviews of similar products is here:,2817,2407197,00.asp .
I hope this helps. If you need additional information, please add a comment with your OS and file burning plans.

(I burn more ISOs and data files. Thus I use the Windows built-in software most of the time.)

I bought an HP laptop from Best Buy 3 years ago. Booklet instructions said I did not have to make recovery discs. Roxio Creator Basic was on computer when I bought it 3 years ago.. I liked program and used...

First, may I recommend Nero Burnlite 10? Nero BurnLite 10 is your solution for CD and DVD burning and copying, powered by the industry's best software. The easy-to-use interface lets you make flawless copies of music files or home videos to share, or create disc images in .iso and .nrg formats. Download it for FREE today!

If you don't like Nero, you may like CDBurnerXP. CDBurnerXP is a free application to burn CDs and DVDs, including Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs. It also includes the feature to burn and create ISOs, as well as a multilanguage interface. Everyone, even companies, can use it for free. It does not include adware or similar malicious components. It is compatible with Windows 2000/XP/2003 Server/Vista/2008/Win7 (x86 / x64). Download it for FREE today!

You will need to contact HP to try and obtain another copy of Roxio Easy Creator Basic, if they even have it anymore. I would recommend sticking with one of the previously mentioned CD burning programs because they are more stable than Roxio, and burn better quality CDs.

In Roxio Creator 10, I attempt to burn a disk of a slide show. I receive an error message 8004520C When I check production it reports no problem. This is repeatable.

Generally, defragmenting your hard disk will resolve this issue. To defragment your computer:

  1. Go to Start--> Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> Disk Defragmenter.
  2. When the Disk Defragmenter window opens, choose Defragment.

If defragmentation doesn't resolve the issue, burn your project as a data file, and then burn your project as a data disc using Disc Copier or Creator Classic. To create a disc image/data file:

  1. After clicking the Burn button, the Burn Project window opens.
  2. You have two data burning options:
    • Image file - this option will save your project as an .ISO file. To burn this file you will need to use the Burn Image option in Creator's Copy section.
    • Folder Set - burning a folder set will create a Video_TS folder that you can burn using Creator Classic. Burning a folder set to DVD will create a fully functional DVD. Do NOT rename the Video_TS folder other wise it will not play! Simply place it in a folder that is the name of your project if you need to keep track.

I have lost my Roxio install disc and I think I have deleted an application in error. Although it still works perfectly every time I boot up or move any file or photo on my PC it keeps trying to install...

Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs
and remove ROXIO.

Then, access
and download "AShampoo V6 Burning Free Edition" and install it.
Great software, and Version 9 (which is not "free") is even better.

I have spent MANY hours developing a nice video. When I go to burn to an image file I get an error message: "Encoding Error 8004520c". I have tried many times. I have defragged. Updated video and...

Here You can find a free mpeg converter for any type of files. What kind of file do You have? If it's .avi, probably Roxio creator cannot burn it because it is too big, and if You nave the menus on Your future DVD, I'm sure the reason is the size. On Mac it's easy. With toast titanium, You can select an option fit-to-DVD, and the video fits on standard DVD. Probably, the default compression options in Roxio aren´t sufficient. Try to search in advanced options compression level, or, You can convert with the MPEG Streamclip the video to mpeg video, by selecting a different level of compression, and then You can offer this file to Roxio. Try this. If it not helps, drop me a message.

Problem with installed Roxio program not opening when prompted

Bro, I can fix this

Editing software is a must but can be expensive. Roxio is great.

This is my best advise to get everything you need.

Go to to watch a video of a Custom Gaming Computer with Tons of editing software like Roxio...The PC has like $4,000 retail for like $659. It comes with a ton of extras like Cyberlink Power Director, 133 Nintendo DS Games, Fallout 3, Adobe CS4 Master Collection, MS Office Ultmate 2007, Roxio Ultimate 2009...and more...Nothing is trial-ware but yours forever.
